Twitter Backlash Against Obama as He Announces Huge Budget for Cities that “help build more climate resilient communities”

Twitter just smacked the White House for holding a competition to determine which cities, states, and counties could win one billion dollars.

The announcement came in regard to a HUD program which will award the billion dollars through a National Disaster Resilience Competition. “Winners” of this money include California, Connecticut, Iowa, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Virginia, plus New York City (separately), New Orleans, Minot North Dakota, Shelby County Tennessee (separately), and Springfield Massachusetts. Funny how the “authorities” always start with attempting to reassure the public that “climate change is real” when writing these big checks…

“Climate change is real and we must think more seriously about how to plan for it,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro… The National Disaster Resilience Competition exemplifies how government can work hand-in-hand with the philanthropic and private sectors to create lasting partnerships that will allow us to together face the challenges of tomorrow.”

That the White House is holding a competition to award as much as one billion dollars rather than direct the money toward immediate crises is staggeringly irresponsible.

For example, the city of Flint, Michigan, is currently experiencing a water shortage crisis due to toxic levels of lead in the drinking water. The White House did not respond to any of the criticisms it received on Twitter, possibly because the senior staff is too busy scratching lotto tickets to fund their next domestic boondoggle.
